Oh, yeah, I used to play ZZT! My grandparents had it on their
computer, so whenever I was at their house I would play it. It was a
bit more puzzle-oriented than all of the various Rogue-likes, which
were general hack-and-slash CRPGs. I don't remember if I ever used the
level editor; I may have just played the pre-existing game.

out lately and I wanted to see how many people even knew it existed.
I enjoy ZZT for the same reason I enjoy many Looney games: It's
about doing cool stuff with simple tools.
For those who don't know, it's this old dos game that's all in
ascii, and you can go around and pick up keys and fight monsters and
all that stuff. Like nethack, but with a level editor. Yes, a built-
in, fully functional level editor. There's a whole community about
writing new levels and doing cool stuff with ZZT... which brings me
to the reason for this post. Has anyone here heard of ZZT before, or
know a better alternative?
